of law, and property rights. we will focus efforts on small- and medium-sized businesses. microfinance has been a tool in promoting enterprise, but we have to expand the small- and medium-sized business as well those too small for traditional banking. the aim of a much larger share of our aid must be the promotion of work and the fostering of free enterprise. nothing we can do as a nation will change lives and nations more effectively and permanently than sharing the insights that lies at the foundation of america's economy. that is that free people pursuing happiness in their own ways. build a strong and properous nation. i traveled to a number of countries and was struck by the vast difference of wealth in nations that were sometimes neighbors. some of that was due to geography. rich countries often have natural resources like mineral deposits or access to waterways for trade. in some cases, all that seemed to separate a rich country from a more poor one was a faint line on the map. in some cases they were economically worlds apart. you can think of north korea and south korea. i bec
of the president's national drug control policy. he brings 37 years of law enforcement and drug policy experience to the position. most recently, prior to coming to washington, he was the chief of police in seattle, washington. and prior to that, he was a deputy director for the united states department of justice office of community policing services. r. gil kerlikowske. [applause] >> good morning. thank you. i would also like pam hyde to pam, and the samhsa team. it is a real partnership and has been for well over three years. national survey on drug use and health provides the important markers but we need to measure ourselves and our work by. it tells us what is working. but it also reminds us of what we have got to do an order to keep our nation healthy. before i discuss the data being released today, i wanted to provide a bit of a perspective of this administration's approach to drug policy. and since my conformation and 2009, we have repeatedly affirmed that we are not waging a war on drugs. as a bumper sticker is totally inappropriate and it does not anywhere near reflected the approach w
to vote. in the real world it is a consequence of what people believe the law is in pennsylvania. before the ruling this week, when the law stated that you did need an id to vote. here is what votespa.com told voters. here is what the splash page website greets voters as of earlier this week. that small print after the judge's ruling, after it became clear that you do not need to have an id to vote in pennsylvania, you are welcome at the polling place, here is how they changed the website, you ready? look at that difference. oh yes, there it is. a change in the small print. but the impression is pretty much the same. if you don't have a driver's license don't show up. this is going on in other states. states where they were not able to change the law. where there is still an effort to make people think they need an id to vote. in idaho, here is what the state is distributing. bring your id and vote. you hear about things like this every election year. it is another thing for it to be your state. your state using your tax dollars to miss inform you about your rights. so you decided to cal
're looking at is a more diverse group of people in terms of education, business, law, even humanity, to some extent. we are looking at a broader generations. we are looking at people, we were talking about xi. he has some enormous experience, my those leaders from all over the world visiting his city. i think we are looking at people experienced in the world. when we look back in history, i expect we will say there was a surge of reform in 1992 after tiananmen. that china was pushed into the world, wto, explosive growth. we will look at hu jintao as a time of consolidation and i look to the next group to push and tackle for the first time the political question. because china's society has changed. it has less dominant leaders. it has a more pluralized society. and has resources scattered among social organizations, corporations that have their own independent power. i think we are going to see a new push. i do not know how vigorous but in the political direction, we will have more cosmopolitan leaders compared to the past. >> for someone to rise to the top of the chinese hierarchy, would gi
of states like in wisconsin and probably in pennsylvania you're having voter i.d. laws which is probably one of the most common form of voter suppression put in place. then the courts are blocking it. in south carolina, in texas doj has been blocking a lot of the efforts and so there is a sort of like two steps backwards one step forward process going on here. where a lot of states are trying to make voting laws worse but we're seeing a pushback from the courts and the department of justice. >> bill: okay. but it has been -- over 20 where there have been attempts, right? >> that's right. they're very calm and they take very different forms. >> bill: i was going to get to that. let's talk about some of the forms. what is the most common form? voter i.d.? >> probably the most common is voter i.d. this is a kind of bait and switch. the way that voter i.d. works is it is sort of intuitive to people that you should show i.d. to prove you are who you are at the polls. people are worried about voter fraud. a lot o
laws, the ban on the xl pipeline, the enforcement of labor laws -- those policies have killed thousands and thousands of jobs and collectively, we are making it incredibly difficult for small businesses to drive, much less -- thrive, much less survive. >> so if you have 65% of spending going to individual payments, what would you do to try to reduce that? >> in order to create more jobs, we have to control the national debt. i think that is what we have to do. i have said it from the beginning. i have given a plan to try to deal with it. this idea that somehow mr. cruz is lecturing us on standing on our own feet, i find incredible. he spent most of your adult life working for the government. you have not created jobs. you have not on your own business. i have. my wife and i own a retail store. we did not have the federal government with their boots on our neck. when george bush was president, we lost 700,000 jobs per month. all these programs were in place at the time. the only addition is the health care act, which has not been fully implemented. i think that you have a selective memor
and a string of decisions. and the obama administration has said that it glees. it's not defending the law, but a group from the republican congress is defending it. >> they're also going to have to look at california's prop 8, to review that, the amendment to the constitution is that marriage is between a man and a woman. >> they look at that and the lower courts threw that out. they said that under the supreme court's precedence in another case about gay rights, that the california voters could not amend the constitution to exclude same-sex marriage once same-sex marriage had already been offered in california. >> higher education admissions. at the heart of this case, abgait fisher, because fisher says she was denied to the university of texas because she is white. what factors would affect their ruling? >> the court has ruled before that diversity is a compelling government interest. the government in other words has an interest, universities have an interest in compiling diverse classes of students, that diversity helps everyone and that they can look at an applicants's race in making
, president obama's done a much better job in enforcing the trade laws than we've ever seen before. he's pushed china. he just won three cases. he won a case on pipe to put thousands of people back to work. he won a case of tires that put people back to work. and he just filed one on auto parts. look, mitt romney's talk is cheap. he'll go back to this -- he's working on currency. we're all working on currency. mitt romney will go back to the same paradigm that we had before. signing agreements that are good for wall street but not good for main street. >> even though this tax increase that we're about to see is going to increase taxes for anybody making more than $250,000. >> which tax increases you talking about? >> the fiscal cliff issue as we see the tax cuts expire at year end. >> well, the president said he wants to continue those tax breaks for people earning less than $250,000. it's the republicans that say no, we won't give anybody anything unless the millionaires and billionaires get their tax cut too. they don't need -- they need to pay their fair share. and we -- >> thanks,
of on the lays side. i bring my bull whip a little bit. come on, let's go. it might be against the law but i do that too. >> a bull whip and a church fan is not unheard of. that's terrific. i know you're supporting the president. what are your thoughts on the debate this week? >> i like to find out which one of the republicans paid "saturday night live" not to come on live last night. they had a replay. i was hoping to see something more action. "saturday night live" usually brings things into perspective with a little bit better humor. >> you don't like to see a rerun of mick jagger hosting? >> no, not really. >> i would have loved to watch that. >> i want to see romney get up there, man and stop all his lying he's doing. he just lies like a rug. the man just, every other word is a lie. >> give me an example because i don't think he's on the same level of dishonesty as paul ryan. >> barack obama is robbing the. >> social security. >> medication. >> that's a lie. >> what are they planning to do social security to rob people, privatize it. they need to say hey we need to pay that money back to t
lawsuits pending that could negate some of the new laws that are intended to require photo ids for voters? >> first observation is, in terms of the case in maryland, that was one misguided example. never should have happened. the race was not that close. it was a huge mistake by that individual and he paid for it with a time in prison. in terms of your concerns about voter i.d., and having to show id, i live in virginia and just got my voter card. they allow any kind of thing, a utility bill, or anything like that. it is a lot easier to vote then to get on an airplane. if you are worried about fraud, i think that these are reasonable requirements. >> in terms of polling, to the extent that both firms can, we try to pull a registered voter list. registered voters who have presumably -- i mean, we try to sample who have not only registered -- people who have not only registered but voted in the last election. >> in a lot of states, they have to have a photo id. how do you account for that? >> our callers asked you to show them your folder id -- your photo i.d. >> not a lot that you can do.
as obama's it's already what's mandated by law, which is again reassuring the rest of the conservative base, the guys we still got you. >> you make the right point. i cannot imagine that mitt romney -- mitt romney is going to get up in front of the big crowds of conservative base supporters and say remember the debate, how great i did, i guarantee he won't repeat a policy idea from that debate in front of those crowds. they are not going to cheer for the newly moderate mitt positions. he can be eraser man all he wants and scrub away -- >> if he moves up in the polls i think they will cheer. >> i think they care -- if it gets him percentage points in the polls i think he will. >> there are debates coming up. he can't skate by on talking points in front of rallies of his own supporters, he's going to get pressed on this stomach presumablybly in the next tw debates and will have to enunciate some details of what he does embrace in terms of obama care. >> compassion or conservative won two elections in this country, severely conservative was tanking in this election. so this was move they had t
be in a pretty strong position politically here to argue that due process and rule of law would be or best weapon of al qaeda in preventing him from appearing as a martyr. a direct quote from the president in this new book. lisa sylvester's monitoring some of the top stories in "the situation room" right now. >> hi, wolf. turkey struck back at syria after a cross-border mortar strike. the office of the turkish prime minister says "points in syria have been hit by artillery fire." a mortar strike killed five people near the border. a nato meeting is underway now and it comes on the same day that three car bombs hit a popular square in aleppo, syria's biggest city. at least 40 people were killed in that strike. that city has become the epicenter of the battle between rebels and the forces of president bashar al assad. and a home burglary has left a denver man without the last photographs taken of his 6-year-old granddaughter, a victim of the aurora theater shootings. this is one picture of the youngest of the 12 people killed at the movie theater in july. the denver post reports that robert sulliva
enough that he could pay my way through college. >> i did the same thing for law school right through the stock market, was able to pay back everybody. >> if the president's re-elected, what are the chances that the american business community will think anew about him and be happy that he's re-elected and happy about -- and have confidence that he knows how to be a good pro-business? >> the answer would be because he goes to congress and comes up with a deal. if he comes up with a deal so we have some certainty about what our taxes are going to be and that there won't be massive layoffs from the federal government, he will be hailed as a hero because that's what people talk about, will it be oil or gas or clothing, apparel, retail. these retail executives say we are not getting the sales we'd like because everybody is worried about getting laid off because of this fiscal cliff. it's in the mindset. the president solved it, bingo. >> you just said the word. if i boil down the past four years of economic hardship why we're stalled from every businessperson i talk to at every level, fro
